getting older

the days are
filled with
wedding dresses
and baby names, 
and yet
the cement at my feet
leaves me 
a worried observer. 
throw a gift at me: anything,
just make the world shake
a bit. 
i need a jackhammer
but will
settle for
a sewing needle, 
as long 
as my hands can move 
to free me.
